IL: Bill to close sex offender registry loophole expected to die in Illinois House committee



Friday is the deadline for bills to move out of Illinois statehouse committees, or the bills will die this session. One measure has overwhelming support, but isn’t moving.

House Bill 816 gives a judge discretion to require someone convicted of battery to register as a sex offender, if the crime was sexually motivated.

    Popularity does not equal something being right or correct. Keep sliding that bar to register people as an RC for non-sex crimes and soon you’ll be doing it for petty theft.

    How is this a “loophole”? A non-sexual crime not requiring registration is a loophole? What the? Maybe the real loophole is the DA who plead it down below being a sex offense. Why is there no outcry about that?

    But I guess now it’s not just actual sex-related offenses, but those that are deemed “close enough”? If there’s no sexual element, there’s no sexual element. Period. As AO touches on, it’ll next be Assault, because that’s almost Battery, dontcha know.

      Well, AJ, as you well know, “bad touches” are often preceded by “bad looks.” If you want to get to the source of all of these “hands-on offenses” you have to start with their underlying thought crimes. Can’t wait for those mandatory functional MRI field tests. Can any of us doubt that they’re coming?

    It would be nice if people commented on the article. It looks like people don’t care much.

    It is a simple fact that if it makes sense to Register people for SEX crimes then it makes sense to Register people for all kinds of crimes. Until/unless that is done, the terrorists who support the SEX Offender Registries will continue to have no credibility. They are obviously nothing more than harassing terrorists.

    Wow, I can see a Bill like this ruining the life of many. Example well Hmmm. He smacked me 23 yrs ago. Why would he do this? It was because I didn’t want to have sex with him. Was the police called? I was to scared not knowing what he would do! The sex offender registry is and always has been unconstitutional as a form of Punishment, and law makers know this yet they turn a blind eye to secure votes. That has worked over the last 20 years because we let it work with educating public aka (Voters) We can turn the tables on The Lying politicians that support sex offender registry’s. The ungodly amount of money that it takes to operate the SOR is a wast of Tax dollars that can really make a difference in the lives of millions of people through programs an education I would like to see a public education program that was able to afford a nation wide education event that could have the interest of media outlets coast to coast over 800,000 registrants in the united state’s and im sure each has 10 people who stands by them on these unjust laws do the math im sure we could win I feel it needs to be huge to be heard! Just my opinion and it matters!
